Low Elevation Snow Possilbe Late Tonight through Saturday Morning

Posted on March 23, 2023

A strong cold front will usher unseasonably cold air into

southwest Washington and northwest Oregon later today, with the

cold air likely to linger well into the upcoming weekend. Snow

levels will lower dramatically with the cold front, falling to

around 1000 feet or possibly lower by Friday morning.


Accumulating snow is possible at any elevation beginning late

tonight or early Friday morning. However, the chances of receiving

1 inch or more of snow remain around 20 to 30 percent for any

given location in the interior lowlands. This includes the Greater

Portland and Vancouver area, Kelso, Salem, Albany, Corvallis, and

the Eugene metro area. Chances are slightly higher in the

Columbia Gorge, where showers will be most numerous.


Snow will be most likely to accumulate during the late night and

early morning hours, when ground temperatures are the coolest.

Temperatures are expected to gradually moderate beginning Sunday,

ending the potential for lowland snow.
